Every boating season, participating facilities receive re-certification site visits every three years. These ensure that each facility is still meeting the standards of the program. During these visits If deficiencies are found, they are addressed and program supplies are delivered if needed. The following facilities were re-certified during 2019:
Spot-check practice was introduced in 2017, to assist participating marinas between scheduled visits. Therefore, as staff travel the state, they perform short unannounced site evaluations of certified facilities along the travel route. This ensures that Clean Marinas are maintaining their facilities in alignment with program standards, and also allows staff to provide needed program materials.
Pelton Park, owned by Portland General Electric (PGE), joined the program during the summer of 2019. This marina is located in central Oregon near Madras on Lake Simtustus, the reservoir behind Pelton Dam. This small marina has 46 boat slips, a small store and restaurant, boat launch, land-based fuel station, and fish cleaning table. This site has a relatively low impact on the environment that makes compliance with program standards simple, scoring a 93% on their Clean Marina evaluation. When becoming certified, the marina adopted several new practices, including environmental rules associated with all moorage contracts, new signage for oil spill reporting and Aquatic Invasive Species information, distribution of boater spill kits to moorage customers, and proper labeling of the fuel dispensing pump along with the above-ground storage tank.
